Occupy Inauguration Weekend

From Jill2016.com:

Tune in all day on Saturday, January 21, as we “Inaugurate the Resistance” on Facebook Live and here on the Jill2016 site.

You resisted the neoliberalism of Hillary Clinton and the neofascism of Donald Trump. Thank you! The resistance against Trump and the failed corporate two-party system continues even before he is inaugurated, and will continue afterwards as well.

The recounts in MI, PA and WI helped to reinvigorate the movement for election integrity. We will continue to fight to ensure that every vote counts.

In addition to the recount we are resisting corporate rule through protest.

On January 20, we will join thousands of people and organizations from around the country in Washington DC to Occupy Inauguration, sending a message to Trump that we reject his dangerous presidency from the very start.

On January 21, day one of the Trump administration, we’ll be on Facebook Live with an all-day online forum featuring Greens, social movements, and progressives, sharing resources and inspiration to support resistance and transformation.

We do not consent to Trump’s regime of hate, fear, and corruption.

We will oppose oligarchy with democracy. And we will build an unstoppable movement whose time has come, to put people, planet, and peace over profit.

Join us!

Jill Stein: In 2017, Occupy, Resist, Build Power

From Jill2016.com:

The 2016 Presidential election has left our nation reeling.

Donald Trump’s shock victory is the result of the massive failure of the corporate two-party system, which imposed a whiteout on progressive and independent campaigns while producing the most disliked and untrusted major-party candidates in history.

This toxic election has delivered a uniquely toxic result: right wing extremists, bigots and blowhards will take control of government starting in January, casting a distressing shadow over our future.

As the two-party system hits rock bottom, momentous grassroots struggles are being waged outside the political establishment: at Standing Rock, in the Black Lives Matter movement, the Fight for 15,and more. In these emerging political spaces, we can make this breaking point for the establishment a tipping point towards a new politics for people, planet, and peace over profit.

Greens are uniquely positioned to help lead the way.

What to do now: Sustained protest and organizing

From the Green Party US:

“The Green Party and Green candidates and activists represented political revolution throughout the 2016 election year. We’ll continue to do so during the next four years and beyond,” said Jill Stein, the Green Party’s 2016 nominee for president.

“For Greens, political revolution means supporting front lines of struggle from Black Lives Matter, to pipeline blockades, ending immigrant deportations and bailing out students. It also means fighting Sen. Charles Schumer’s corporate tax break proposal as well as the Trump-Pence agenda. It means offering a Green alternative to neoliberalism, white supremacy, and the two-party political establishment that made the election of someone like Donald Trump possible,” said Dr. Stein.

Join Jill Stein and fellow Greens for the final “presidential” “debate”

From Jill2016.com:

Over 75% of Americans want open debates.

However, the Commission on Presidential Debates, run by former Republican and Democratic party officials, has chosen to exclude Jill Stein from the presidential debates. As we have demonstrated with the previous two debates, this does not stop the Stein/Baraka campaign from speaking truth to power. We have been inserting Jill’s responses in each debate and livestreaming it to #BreakTheBlackout. We’ll do it again during the third, and final, presidential debate on October 19th. We’ll also follow the debate with a live Q&A session, open to all. Join us!
